They sure did play a lot of shows at the Uptown that year!

I don't suppose you were fortunate enough to catch the Rambler Room show on the 17th?

Unfortunately not. (Who knew about it?) The Uptown was really a special place, though -- and they'd do those multi-night runs! I think there's a bit of history associated with 11/18; evidently it was the night that Jerry met his eventual-girlfriend-and-mom-of-one-kid Manasha, when she gave him a pumpkin from the audience. Not that I remember any pumpkins.

I remember Donna singing, though. And Keith at the keyboards. That's my big thrill: I remember Donna! I'm officially a Keith-and-Donna Era Deadhead! (By a nose, but hey, it still counts, right?)
